First time here, will try to post correctly. I am looking for any connection to grandfather Edwin Clawson Greaves or Edwin G Clawson or Edwin Thornhill. Edwin born Feb 11 1878 in Harrison, Barbados. Edwin died 1960 in Thunder Bay Ontario Canada. Edwin's father was John Francis Greaves, mother Rebecca Thornhill married Dec 6 1904.

Edwin left Barbados around 1899, ended in England, met and married Emily Guise Bagley Dec 6 1904. From England, Edwin, known as Ned and Emily emigrated to Canada in 1906. Edwin was black and Emily white. They raised a large family in Canada. Inspite of prejudices and racism he worked hard to gain other's respect and passed to all family members the legacy of pride and respect for others. I am 64 and his granddaughter. I seek any information about this wonderful man about his past and family connections. Thank you, Elaine
